I'm using Win XP and Sandboxie 3.26.10: I downloaded Super DX-Ball 2 installer and then moved the installer file outside of any sandbox folder. Right-clicked the installer file, chose Run Sandboxed, and picked a sandbox with no special settings at all. Accepted all program installer defaults. Did no...

If you use Sandbox Settings | Recovery | Quick Recovery | Add Folder, then browse to and select a folder, it should work - as long as you specify that folder as the storage location whenever you download something. Select a folder (like C:\Downloads), not the root of your hard drive (like C:\). If y...

After shutting down my computer for a few hours, when I tried Thunderbird I had the same problem with thumbs.db being offered for Quick Recovery. After disabling all Thunderbird Add-ons, I was not getting that Quick Recovery prompt. I re-enabled all of the TB extensions one at a time, and I still di...

You did not mention that you restarted the program that creates the Thumbs.db file (probably Windows Explorer) to refresh the configuration already recorded in it. So maybe there's your problem. I'm saying this because I tested it and for me it does work as I described. Well, I'm not sure why it do...

Well, my hopes were high but it didn't work for me. I used Sandboxie's GUI: Sandbox Settings | Recovery | Immediate Recovery | "Add Type" button | db | OK | OK Then Configure | Edit Configuration Changed "AutoRecoverIgnore=.db" to read "AutoRecoverIgnore=thumbs.db" File | Save | File | Exit (even tr...

I don't have a clue as to whether they could actually tell if you are copying/pasting, but... Firefox v2 has a nice ability to save media type items by clicking Tools | Page Info | Media tab You don't do any right-clicking on the page - something that they might disallow with javascript code, if you...

Specify a filename as an exclusion in Immediate Recovery

I've recently noticed that whenever I attach a picture from the My Documents/My Pictures folder, to an email message, the sandboxed Thunderbird puts a 'thumbs.db' Windows thumbnail file in the sandboxed My Documents/My Pictures/... folder. Even though I have Immediate Recovery turned-on, and the My ...

After you get the error message, have you tried to delete the sandbox folder using Windows Explorer - and does it delete then? If you can't delete it with Explorer, see if you can find out what program may have a lock on a file in the sandbox. Unlocker , which is used from the right-click menu in Wi...

You will find different opinions on that. Personally, I use an A/V program along with Sandboxie, and I wouldn't do without it. What I have given up on is on-demand spyware scanners. I used to use Ad-Aware and SpyBot Search and Destroy to occasionally scan my hard drive. I don't have them installed, ...

What should I do about this? You can increase the "File Migration" setting for the sandbox: Dbl-click the Sandboxie tray icon, right-click the sandbox and choose Sandbox Settings. Then click "File Migration". Change the file size that prompts the message, from 32768 to something larger. I think tha...

Since Pop Peeper wants to insert itself into the computer's keyboard input, in order to light the Scroll Lock light, I don't see how you can allow that by a sandboxed program. Even configuring Sandboxie to permit programs running in that sandbox to manufacture fake keyboard inputs doesn't work. I su...

The other thing that I haven't addressed is e-mail. When I click on an e-mail link on a WEB page it won't allow it because I haven't configured my e-mail client yet. If you are getting a message "SBIE2212 Email reader 'xxx' is not configured to run sandboxed" (and especially if it's Thunderbird), r...

Maybe it's platform dependent, as you say. (I'm using XP and Firefox) If there's a link in the window of one of my tabs, that I want to open in another (existing) tab, I can drag and drop that link onto the other tab, to open the link there. I can drag and drop a link from the address bar onto any o...
